The newest legendary additions to Pokémon do not disappoint, though some of them are a bit harder to find than you’d think. Keep reading for a full list of all the wicked legendaries you can expect to find in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet!
All Legendaries in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet
Koraidon and Miraidon are the main legendaries of the series, with Koraidon being exclusive to Pokémon Scarlet and Miraidon being exclusive to Pokémon Violet. These legendary Pokémon play integral roles in the stories of the games, though they’re not the only legendary Pokémon these games have to offer.
Koraidon is the exclusive legendary Pokémon of Pokémon Scarlet. Koraidon is a Fighting/Dragon-type paradox Pokémon that’s modeled after a prehistoric dinosaur; in addition to this, it’s modeled after a motorcycle, just like Miraidon. However, instead of being modeled after a modern motorcycle, Koraidon looks more like a classic motorcycle, with long “handlebars”, treaded tires, and a powerful lower body. This legendary Pokémon has the Orichalcum Pulse, which turns the sunlight harsh when the Pokémon enters a battle; this will raise its attack stat.
Miraidon is the exclusive legendary Pokémon of Pokémon Violet. Miraidon is an Electric/Dragon-type paradox Pokémon that looks more like a futuristic hoverbike than anything else. Miraiddon is modeled after a motorcycle like Koraidon, but instead of having traditional motorbike features, it instead has pixelated eyes, rocket thrusters for legs, and sleek, treadless tires. This legendary Pokémon has the Hadron Engine ability, which turns the ground into electric terrain when the Pokémon enters a battle; this will raise its special attack stat.
Wo-Chien is one of four of the legendary Treasures of Ruin Pokémon. Wo-Chien is a Dark/Grass-type Pokémon that lives in one of the Grasswither Shrine in the South Province area. Its exclusive ability is Tablets of Ruin, which decreases the attack stats of all other Pokémon on the field by 25%.
Chien-Pao is another Ruinous Pokémon, it’s a Dark/Ice Pokémon that lives in the Icerend Shrine in the West Province area. Its exclusive ability is Sword of Ruin. This special ability decreases the defense stats of all other Pokémon on the field by 25%.
Ting-Lu is a legendary Pokémon of the Treasures of Ruin, it’s a Dark/Ground type Pokémon who lives in the Groundlight Shrine in the North Province. Its exclusive ability is Vessel of Ruin, which decreases the special attack stats of all other Pokémon on the field by 25%.
Chi-Yu is another legendary Treasures of Ruin Pokémon who, despite its fishy appearance, is actually a Dark/Fire-type Pokémon. Chi-Yu lives in the Firescourge Shrine in the North Province. Its ability is Beads of Ruin, which is a special ability that decreases the special defense stats of all other Pokémon on the field by 25%.
